From pickups to tractors, Fleet Owner's preview of 2004 commercial trucks highlights how the slow economy, new emissions regulations and competitive pressures are reshaping the vehicles fleets buy. As a result, some manufacturers eliminated certain models, while others made no changes to their product lines.
